I posted a video on my YouTube channel to explain how you can use the Centerpoint Function on your Cricut Expression to cut starting from the center you specify.
The same can be done with an Expression 2 (E2), but I do not have this machine to show you.
The Center Point button uses the center of the image to locate the shape in your project rather than the lower left corner of the image. For instance, if you were planning to cut a 8″ x 10″ photograph into an oval, using the Center Point function you could use the Start Position function to move the cutter to the center of the photograph and select an oval shape. You could then use the Center Point function to line the center of the oval up with the center of the photograph.
If there are multiple images on the mat, they will all be combined using each image’s center point, creating a single monolithic image to be cut. This option is not available for projects which contain more than a single page. To return the images to the regular location, press the Center Point button again.
